BLI Announces an Influx of Top Energy Performers

 

Since the end of the Winter 2013 test season, BLI has already published 39 environmental test reports, 11 of which have earned five stars for both energy consumption and the overall rating; and there are nearly three months left in the test season! Although most of the top performers were A4 MFPs in the small workgroup category, some A3 devices also garnered the five-star seal. Below is a list of the top performers and a glimpse at how they fared against their respective competitive groups in BLI’s environmental job stream test:

 

5-Star Winners

Brother MFC-8910DW

- 51% lower than average projected annual energy consumption

- Faster than average recovery times from sleep mode

Each of these models also offers a variety of environmentally friendly features to help reduce waste and further conserve energy consumption. Their respective Environmental Test Reports provide additional environmental information to guide and educate end users. Given the significant energy savings demonstrated by these devices during BLI’s real-world environmental testing, there’s a good chance you’ll be hearing about them again in July when BLI announces its Summer 2013 “Pick” and “Outstanding Achievement” awards.
